Merry Christmas

In less than an hour it will be Christmas. Hoss is in PA, we are not. We had planned to spend Christmas out there with him since he is working but that was before we knew we would be moving so I wanted to spend Christmas out here with my family. Who knows how long it will be before we all spend another one together? The house is quiet, all of the kids are asleep, all of the dogs are asleep, Jazz is under the desk keeping my feet warm, Santa's cookies and rice milk are waiting for him on the kitchen counter, our very own Charlie Brown Christmas tree is lit up and Christmas music is playing thru my desktop speakers. The kids and I went to an early (3:30 pm)Christmas Eve service at our church, then stayed to volunteer in the nursery for the next service. E and K had big plans for this year. E got a new telescope for Christmas from Papa & Nana and they were going to use it to look for The Big Fat Guy in the Red Suit. (Hmmm, I just noticed I am wearing my red pajamas, I think I will go change right this very moment). They were tracking Santa all night on, and were determined to pull an all-nighter. This was going to be the year for a sighting, finally! Banana was the first one to go to bed. I'm positive I saw the other 2 kids high five when she went down to her room. I can't really blame them, she isn't the most pleasant person to be around lately. Oh the joys of being 13. Well, K gave in just after 10pm and by 10:30 they were all 3 snoring away. I guess that's what happens when you stay up late watching movies on Dec 23rd, you just aren't very well rested for a Christmas Eve all night stake out. Gee, it's almost as if I had that one planned out...

Merry Christmas to everyone!
